Self-Esteem a key to holistic development to a girl child.

Develop and improve a girl child confidence to attain a holistic empowered and a future impactful citizenry woman of the nations.

Self-esteem refers to a person’s overall sense of his or her value or worth. It can be considered a sort of measure of how much a person “values, approves of, appreciates, prizes, or likes him or herself” (Adler & Stewart, 2004).

75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25% of girls with high self-esteem. About 20% ofteens will experience depression before they reach adulthood.

According to the National Association for Self Esteem, people who have high self esteem typically possess 7 desirable traits.

Are friendly.
Have lots of energy.
Smile lots and lots and lots.
Feel good most of the time.
Talk positively to themselves.
Draw positive people to them.
Are independent and able to take risks.
